Guerilla Un-marketing

I admire the audacity of this campaign by the Downhill Battle organization, even if I have reservations about its efficacy and advisability. Remember, the vast majority of major label employees are not fat cats, are not evil, love music, and have the artist’s best interests at heart. Obviously, that does not all apply all the way up, but I have a hard time justifying tossing my friends out on the street.

I completely disagree with the RIAA’s methods, attitude, perspective, sense of entitlement, but boycotting the labels seems an overly broad attack – like I said, mixed feelings.

More on the Downhill org here and here.
